Hook-up wire (1000V 1.8A solid) PVC

No stranded wires = no wire whiskers and easier wiring

This is a small gauge, solid core hook-up wire in multiple colours for wiring up your amplifier projects. All colours have the same ratings and physical dimensions. Some amp builders have a love/hate thing with solid-core wire. Me, too – my first builds were with this wire and I liked that you could get perfect 90-degree bends, and very tight twists. This wire is perfect – and by far the most suitable – for wiring up the small miniature toggle switches. There are no strands to worry about and with a single solid wire, soldering to lugs is a lot easier and quicker. That minimises the risk of damaging the switch through prolonged heat.

I stock 11 commonly used colours:

  • Black
  • Blue
  • Brown
  • Green
  • Grey
  • Orange
  • Pink
  • Red
  • Violet
  • White
  • Yellow


If you want wire to complete an amp build, you may prefer to save money by buying a pre-packaged bag of wire. This includes all of the colours of this hook-up wire, as well as shielded wire, bare hook-up wire and cable ties.


Dimensions & info

The cable’s overall diameter – including the insulation – is 1.2mm. The wire is solid (one single strand). The insulation is PVC. Rated at 1000V and 1.8A, it’s suitable for use throughout the whole circuit for most 1-10W amp designs. The price below is a per-metre figure (for North American customers, 1 metre is just over 3ft).
